Medium mixed media | painting | printing
Cynthia Motian McGuirl (b. 1963) is a Maine painter, printmaker, and multi-media artist. She has been creating art in Maine over the last 40 years. A series of intense dreams about her ancestors lead McGuirl to seek a narrative mode of expression. Much of her work is inspired by her Armenian family and their experience during the Armenian Genocide. McGuirl's paintings, often figurative, use color and form to convey a strong atmosphere and intensity of emotion.
